    Great!

    To repeat myself from a old thread:

    While browsing the KoW store I've noticed a clear lack of pictures showing what exactly the product are. Having pictures of painted models is all well and good since it's often easier to get a feel of the models from painted models rather than unpainted.

    However; it's always nice to also be able to look at the unpainted sprues and other bits that actually make up the product. For example, just seeing a ranked up regiment don't make it clear how many duplicate bodies there are.

    More problematic; for some product some components are not shown at all (or even mentioned in the text!). The skeleton regiment contain a skeletal dog but the dog isn't shown anywhere in the pictures. (although it's mentioned in text)

    The Abyssal Decimators are described as armed with Thunderpipe blunderbusses, which is what the models seems armed with in the pictures.

    A single customer review on the now unavailable regiment bundle however, mentioned that they also include parts to be armed with rifles or crossbows. If that is true than this really should be mentioned, since it makes the kit have extra value. Since there is no photos of the components I cannot know if the claim is true or not.

    Personally I always like seeing exactly what I'm buying before throwing my money down. I imagine Mantic has lost more than a few sales from people that wanted that as well and didn't feel like wasting time trawling google hoping to find some blurry pic on a plog showing what the kit actually contain.


    TL;DR:
    Why not have pictures of the sprues and actual components included in all kits? I realize that it's a lot of photos to take, but surely this should be relatively easy compared to photographing painted models. Especially since all the lighting and stuff needs to be set up now and then to take photos of new releases. Surely, it would be very little extra work to take some extra pictures of components while taking pics of painted newly released models?

      Thanks for the question Zywus!

      Also, to anyone wondering, we won't unfortunately be able to have Q&A in March's issue, but please get any questions you may have in by the 15th so we can make sure they get over to Mantic in a timely fashion!

        Are there any plans to replace the metal/plastic hybrid kits by restic/plastic or resin/plastic kits?

        What is planned for Warpath/Warpath: FireFight in 2017 after the KS stuff hits retail? (hard to get people into it without information about the games future)

          Apologies, all; I dropped the ball on getting these questions to Mantic by the 15th, so rather than rush them for answers and leave questions unaddressed I'll save them for the set of question submissions next issue instead.

          Again, my apologies about this, but please keep the questions coming!

            Other than the Landing Pad, Ruins and some of the accessory sets, all of the Sci-Fi Battlezone kits are out of stock at the webstore and are starting to get hard to get a hold of in retail. Is there an ETA on a restock of the Sci-Fi Battlezones line?

                  Any updates on the in house resin? Date for when they go up for preorder? What molds are moving to resin? I would be all on for some resin Earth Elementals.

                    And to elaborate on the above, specifically when do we get the new resin Drakons!

                      I'm up for resin Naiad Wyrm Riders and Molochs. And eventually Tyrants and Rhinosaurs.
